I have a bad feeling about this…
Tbh I’ve personally delayed my Mage Tower anxiety, hoping it’d become more fair with 10.0 changes and new talents, but now this.
I hope I don’t regret not bothering to try this ultra broken version.
By the way, why Shadowlands Mage Tower feels “Ultra Broken”?
Because, it was not properly scaled already, at all.
It favored gem slotted gear and broken trinket grind.
It should’ve also awarded old rewards too.
(Saying this as owner of og 36: https://www.facebook.com/421212464742871/posts/837546946442752/)
And now this arrives, an update this late long after Alpha, Beta and PTR went live at the last second makes me feel uneasy.
Because og Mage Tower mechanics were based on 2 things:
Artifact Weapon’s Special Skill
We could also use tiers.
But SL Mage Tower did not only disabled all that, it also cut down the equivalent of Artifact Skills; the Covenant Skills, tier bonuses etc. were not usable either.
So was it not doable, sure it was, a lot of people made it and that’s proof.
But was it fair?
And now this last second move comes…
Right when it could become a bit more fair by itself with the new talents.
So, I hope:
They won’t only give Legion level talents
They reconsider enabling Legion Legendaries and tiers
Also awarding old appearances while giving a FoS for ogs.
